Our plan is to have all SACE subjects available for online submission by 2020.

Once assessment materials have been submitted to Schools Online, externally assessed materials will be marked online, and school assessed materials will be moderated online.

We will continue to work with schools during this period to identify the most suitable subjects to transition each year. We recognise some subjects may require further consultation and support before moving into this space.

Why these subjects?

During our consultation sessions with teachers, we learned that students in the selected subjects were already submitting their subject materials electronically to the teacher. It then makes sense for the subject materials to be submitted online to the SACE Board. These subjects were also found to be manageable for schools, in terms of size and scale.

Stage 2 teachers of the selected subjects are encouraged to review their learning and assessment plan and consider any changes that:

  • take advantage of the opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning in electronic ways, and
  • ensure teachers can directly upload student work to Schools Online without the need to digitally scan materials.

The SACE Policy Framework [DOC 154KB] and the subject outline specifications are not changing for these subjects. The move to online marking and moderation is not a policy change. It is a procedural change to the method by which materials are submitted - from hard copy to online.
